Drank from a 12 ounce can traded for at CANvention in Dallas. Poured into a pint glass. The pumpkin cinnamon flavor is there, but (fortunately) not overwhelming. Pours flat - very little lacing which entirely disappeared after one minute.. A mild brew with little carbonation and good flavor, a nice one but not great. Easy to drink.

Sampling right now on 9/14/14. Comes in a 12 ounce can like all of their brews Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein. Alcohol content is 6.1% (ABV) as on the side of the can.

Pours a pretty orange-amber in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of pumpkin, spice and grains. The taste is even better with the perfect amount of pumpkin and spice. Very smooth and really easy to drink. Lighter to medium bodied and perfect carbonation. One of the best pumpkin brews so far this year, though it needed a bit more of the great flavor to make this a '10'. Overall, a great brew.

From my notes on 11/4, on draft at Rattle 'n Hum

Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice tight white head.

The aroma is of light pumpkin, with some nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. A nice bright aroma.

The taste is of pumpkin, nutmeg, and allspice. Seems to have a sour oak flavor but from what I read, this beer is not barrel aged. There seems to be an odd spice or sweet element I can't quite put my finger on. At first I thought this was a bourbon barrel aged pumpkin but its not. Not sure what this flavor is coming from.

The feel was light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. It drinks crisp.

I thought it was a good pumpkin, though it has some odd flavors to it.
